Asus' ZenFone 2 is already pretty affordable, but the company is making its Atom-powered smartphone lineup even more accessible today. The ZenFone 2E offers a dual-core Clover Trail+ Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, an eight-megapixel camera, and 8GB of expandable onboard storage for just $119.99. AT&T will be the exclusive US carrier of this device on its pre-paid GoPhone service.
While that spec list might pale a little bit in comparison to high-end phones we usually cover (especially the last-gen Atom CPU), the 2E still has some nice features for its price range, including LTE connectivity. The camera features a fast f/2.0 lens, and the 5" IPS display gives ZenUI-skinned Android 5.0 a 1280x720 playground. This ZenFone can also accept microSD cards as big as 64GB. Those specs match up favorably with Motorola's $120 Moto E, which savvy shoppers will no doubt be comparing to this device.
Asus says the ZenFone 2E is available immediately at Walmart and Target stores in the USA. AT&T stores will get the device starting August 2.
